Native Instruments today announced Guitar Rig Mobile, an affordable all-in-one solution that turns any computer into a powerful and easy-to-use guitar recording and performance setup. Combining the new ultra-compact Guitar Rig Mobile I/O USB 2.0 audio interface with the versatile Guitar Rig 3 LE software, Guitar Rig Mobile offers studio-grade sound quality and a wide range of creative features that allows musicians and producers to "plug in and play" anywhere without any compromises.
No larger than a cigarette pack, the bus-powered Guitar Rig Mobile I/O provides the professional sound quality of Native Instruments' audio interface range in a package that literally fits in a pocket. At the same time, the interface offers an uncompromising feature set with stereo high-impedance inputs and outputs featuring 24bit/192 kHz Cirrus Logic audio converters, I/O volume dials, and multi-purpose low-latency drivers for Windows and Mac OS X.
The included Guitar Rig 3 LE software offers the versatility and ease-of-use of the Guitar Rig platform. Three charismatic amp emulations for guitar and bass, 12 classic effect units, and a wide selection of cabinets, all freely combinable within a "virtual rack", make it easy to create authentic custom tones for any musical genre. The software also includes two virtual tape decks, tuner and metronome, to facilitate all typical guitar applications from recording, live performance and rehearsal to instrument learning and tuition.
Guitar Rig Mobile will be available in April 2009 for a suggested retail price of $119 / €99.
